Low Emission Combustor Technology Program. Final report, Volume II


Other (Open)

This work is part of the DOE/METC Low Emission Combustor Technology Program to evaluate coal-water mixtures (CWM) in a low emission staged rich/lean combustor - the Multiannular Swirl Burner (MASB) - for stationary combustion turbines. This Final Report, Volume 2 contains the results of the last set of combustion tests of this combustor with CWMs and methane fuels. This set of tests includes the testing of the cooled deposition pin designed for ash deposition measurements and a particulate sampling probe. Preliminary collection of particulates and pin deposits was made. Combustion test results for CWM (62% by weight) with a methane (38%) pilot show the high combustion efficiencies, up to 88%. All test results including those reported earlier show that efficiencies up to 99.5% are obtained for CWM and methane mixture (72%/28%) for this combustor and 53% for CWM alone. Results reported here indicate that CWM with only 50% solid loading is a marginal fuel at the heat release rates being attempted for this metal wall combustor and that a higher heat content fuel is required.
